Sorry I'm still learning the process of doing netdev. If you can
straighten it out for me that would be very helpful.

The handle I have is:

"> This should probably also CC stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

DaveM prefers net patches to not do so and he takes care of forwarding
patches once he is happy (i.e. after they've been in his/Linus' tree for
a bit)."

But it seems that Ian got you wrong. Or I misunderstood him.

So this patch series is considered both for net-next and stable because
it is basement for our future development and we would also like it to
get backported to stable. What should I do with it? Should I rebase it
against net-next or net? Or should I send out two series against
different branches?

Furthur question, now that I know there is actually two branches for
network related development, should I explicitly point out which branch
my series is against in the future?

Thank you for your time. :-)
